Return with Honor.

Life is precious. you never know when your time here is up, and at any second it can be. I am more careful with my ways these days, as last friday september 18, my sweet cousin Amanda Jean Wagner Gunter did return with honor. Never as close with her as i would have liked, I do know these things about her. I regularly blog stalked her and know from her blog she had an amazing testimony of her Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, which she publicly shared. She absolutely loved her family in every way and was able to be sealed to her husband and family for time and all eternity. She was very creative and would make all kinds of things. She was an amazing example to her younger siblings and cousins and was very humble. My heart hurts for her 15 month old daughter (who is fine) and her Husband (who is recovering), all whom were in the car. My heart hurts for all her family and friends and it hurts me. Although it is such a sad time I am so grateful to have the knowledge of the plan of salvation and to know that Families can be together forever! Amanda will be waiting in Heaven to see them again, for all of us, i know we will see her again. I love this church and the comfort and strength that it brings of times like this. Amanda's funeral is tomorrow morning and i wish i was able to be there, i will be remembering her all and all the time- we were asked to wear bright colors- so tomorrow i will be in my brightest colors in honor of Amanda. Here is the newspaper obituary
